Carter Sisters and Mother Maybelle With Chet Atkins

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Recorded in 1949, this collection of tracks by the Carter Sisters -- with Chet Atkins -- is a wonderfully varied and raw series of songs that were performed live on the radio during the period. Atkins adds a great deal to the sound here, not only as a guitarist, but often as a singer as well.

The other twist on the Sisters' sound is that they picked up on Atkins' penchant for swing and the Andrews Sisters. The Carter Sisters were nowhere near as polished and slick, and their way of harmonizing was straight out of the backwoods church, but they could bring the pop swing into the Appalachians and do here on a number of cuts, most notably (and surprisingly) "My Confession." Some of the songs here, earthy as they are, still contain that element that made the Carter Family's music almost surreal.
